Granny Goes Back Home to Florida
Danielle's mom is finally going back home to Florida. As she puts it, she has done her job. Danielle, the boys and Ian are there to see her off. Rod had to go back to work. Due to some minor passing thunderstorms, the plane departure has been delayed for an hour.
"Mom, I've gotten so used to you being here, it's going to take me a while to function normally again." (Danielle)
"Oh chile, you will be just fine. I am leaving you in good hands." (Grandma)
Daria is headed to Florida to meet up with her husband who is on a business trip. They will take the weekend to enjoy the sun and the sights. Pretty poor timing, considering her younger sister just showed up in town.
"Do you really think we are going to be able to leave in an hour?" (Worker in pink)
"They are usually pretty good at predicting those weather patterns." (Worker in suit)
"So Ian, will I be back soon to help with your wedding?" (Grandma)
"Bite your tongue, mom. I'm way too young to think about marriage. Maybe when I'm 35." (Ian)
"Come on Jacob. They have candy over here." (Julian whispering)
No one notices that the two little ones have walked off.
"Julian? Jacob?" (Danielle)
She notices them by the closed concession stand and she immediately hops up.
"Julian and Jacob, WHAT are you doing over here?" (Danielle)
"Julian, you know better than to walk off like that." (Danielle)
"But mommy, you guys are right there." (Julian)
"It doesn't matter how close we are. It takes seconds for someone to snatch you away. Not only did you risk your life, but you took Jacob with you, too. Go have a seat. We will discuss this more when we get home." (Danielle)
"Julian, you know better. What were you thinking? Do you know how much we would miss you if something happened to you? Come sit with me." (Grandma)
Within the hour, Granny's plane is loaded and the take off is successful. It's a very somber goodbye as everyone has gotten used to Granny being there. She promises to come visit soon.
Note: About a week ago Ms. Leo did a blog post on a lady who sells inexpensive doll clothes, including clothes for the male dolls. I bought a few things. Ian is wearing one of the short sets that arrived. It has a collar, but the collar is a tad too big for me. Right now it is tucked in. I will either cut it off or make the collar a little smaller. You can get all the info about this ebay seller on Ms. Leo's post. Thanks Ms. Leo.
